Batou is a cyborg. His body is artificial: the only remnants left of his humanity are traces of his brain ... and the memories of a woman called The Major. A detective for the government's covert anti-terrorist unit, Public Security Section 9, Batou is investigating the case of a gynoid - a hyper-realistic female robot created specifically for sexual companionship - who malfunctions and slaughters her owner. As Batou delves deeper into the investigation, questions arise about humanity's need to immortalize its image in dolls. Together, Batou and his partner must take on violent Yakuza thugs, devious hackers, government bureaucrats and corporate criminals to uncover the shocking truth behind the crime.

Drunk drivers are bad, but put a drunk driver in a giant robot called a Labor and you've got a disaster waiting to happen.

And THAT's where the motley crew of Section 2, Division 2 comes in!
